Come along throughout the day to explore our interactive exhibits and take part in today’s shows and activities.

Today’s shows:

11.00am Built for Speed

How do we build machines?  What makes them work and what makes them go fast?  Why are some machines faster than others and how do we build machines for speed?

Today, we will be looking at how machines work and why some are faster than others.  You can build your very own machine out of recycled materials.

14:30pm Start Making Sense

Are there really only 5 senses, or are there others we never hear about? Find out more about the familiar senses, plus a few other, less familiar ones in our show.

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm Paper Snakes

Learn about wide variety of colours and markings on snakes and that some snakes use colour to stand out and give a signal, while others are well camouflaged, making them hard to spot in their natural habitat. Choose your favourite and make your own paper snake to take home.

16:00pm Straw Rockets

How do we make rockets move?  Make your own straw rocket and explore how and why they zoom off into space!
